Proteinuria can be produced with statistically significant regularity in rats by the reduction of renal tissue to the minimum compatible with life.4 There is no reason to believe that the human kidney behaves differently from that of the rat, but direct evidence is not at hand, for the experimental methods used in the physiology laboratory on the rat are obviously not applicable to the study of human renal function. The purpose of this paper is to present the findings in a patient from whom, for therapeutic reasons, one kidney was removed, and who immediately thereafter received a large amount of
